The Red Devils are yet to add a new striker to their ranks under Erik ten Hag.

Manchester United reportedly consider Rasmus Hojlund as a top priority target ahead of the next season.

The Red Devils have been scanning the market for a new forward since Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial departure last winter.

A host of world-class strikers are linked with moves to Old Trafford. But the Red Devils are yet to make an official bid for their potential new No.9.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Atalanta’s Hojlund tops Man Utd’s target list for the position. The Sky Sports journalist claims the Dane himself is “very keen” to join the Red Devils, but there have been no concrete negotiations over his possible transfer.

Since joining La Dea last summer, Hojland has quickly established his reputation as one of the most exciting strikers in the Italian top flight. The 20-year-old registered nine goals and four assists, helping Atalanta finish the Serie A season in the fifth spot.

Last month, Daily Mail reported that Atalanta demanded around £86m for Hojlund. However, Man Utd are not willing to pay more than £51.5m for the young striker.

In addition to Hojlund, Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen are the other strikers on United’s radar. But both options would cost more if signed this summer.
